Hello Vestner, Goodbye Pandect

September 3, 2015

If you’ve been following Pandect, it’s likely that you will have noticed the increasing impingement of the Vestner brand. What is this Vestner all about?

Well with Pandect’s reputation as a leading lift provider in the Southern Hemisphere, we caught the eye of a northern hemisphere counterpart – Vestner Aufzüge GmbH. Vestner is a German business specializing in elevator construction. Having built a reputation as the best in the northern world, Vestner was originally founded in Munich in the 1930s and is family run business. Pandect became a likely acquisition of the Vestner family after the business looked to extend its reach into a global market. On their search they found Pandect was a business that mirrored the same core values and principles, and was at the top of their game in terms of the construction of lifts/elevators.

As of 1 August 2015 Pandect Ltd was purchased by Vestner as a going concern. The philosophies of the company were very similar – a strong reputation in New Zealand and Australia with the quality service provision and innovative products for access solutions in both commercial and residential markets. This purchase is a clear strategic acquisition to access the Pacific/Asian region and build upon the great work that Pandect has done in the region and build the Vestner brand within the southern hemisphere.


What will change?
Essentially nothing in regards to our operations.

You’ll still see the same faces, talk with the same people and receive the same great customer service and value that you did with Pandect – it’s simply business as usual. The only change is that we call ourselves Vestner NZ Limited (our trading name) and any correspondence is now from the Vestner domain, rather than Pandect.

The Pandect name will live on in terms of the branded lifts; for example the Pandect Ascensa Platform lift.


Looking to the future?
Vestner NZ Limited retains the services of Pandect’s former director and owner Ian Bougen (and all Pandect Staff), and is excited about the prospect of future growth and the support that Vestner (Germany) can provide as Vestner NZ looks to continue developing quality lifts while  also integrating new technology and design.

Coming in under the Vestner umbrella is an exciting and rewarding time for the staff of Pandect, and it is with excitement that we all look forward to the bright future of the business and the ability to continue to meet the requirements of our customers in terms of accessibility and providing greater freedom for those with disabilities in commercial and residential properties.
